liking his wife is not enough to get him elected president of the united states. he had to start off where he did, which was reforming and slaining the damage that's been done to the republican party and letting us know who he is. without doing that, the next six weeks are unimportant to him. we expect to see a little bit of a burch. one of the things i wanted to add though was that the bump he received was coming before barack obama speaks next week. barack obama is a fabulous speaker. he is a family man. people like his wife. people like his children. people like the fact that he is so supportive of women's rights in the workplace in addition to reproductive rights. i would guess that we're going to see whatever bump mitt romney got this week particularly among independents and women evaporate after the democratic convention next week. >> it will be interesting to see. karl romney also claimed at the beginning of his speech that republicans had united behind the president following his election. just take a quick listen. >> four years ago i know that many americans felt a fresh exc
